The house has one en suite bedroom with a double bed and a cot. The two other bedrooms (one with double bed, the other with two singles) and another little room with one bed, share the second bathroom. In the morning you will wake to the sounds of a farm: a crowing cock, bleating sheep, and hadidas and guinea fowl greeting the new day. If this is the life style you enjoy, we extend a warm welcome to you here at Oude Tol.

Following the path next to the trees for about 100 meters one finds the new guest house on top of a grassy slope.
It is build in a U-shape with many windows to allow a view in all directions.
In the middle we have the open plan living area, with fully equipped kitchen, dining table and lounge area, also equipped with TV and a lovely fire place.
To the left as well as to the right there are each two double bedrooms with a bathroom in between.
The living area has a large glass door opening unto a wooden deck, where one can enjoy the morning colours while having that first cup of coffee. The sheep press out of the kraal, the milking cow comes into the milkshed, and the chicken houses are opened up.

In Room Facilities:

Every room is fitted with a ceiling fan for summer conditions. The open plan living area consists of a fully equipped kitchen, with stove, micro, fridge etc, a dining area with a very large table, and a lounge area with an open fireplace (wood supplied)

Area Information:

Just 80 minutes’ drive north of Cape Town, at the northern edge of one of the most beautiful fertile valleys in the country, lies the historical town of Tulbagh. The village nestles in amongst the Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua Mountains, which surround it on three sides and provide one of the most beautiful settings in the Western Cape.

Proteas and herbs grow wild here and peaches, pears and 70 percent of the country’s plums are farmed in the shadow of the mountains. The valley is perhaps best known for its production of some of the country’s finest wines. Estate wines such as Twee Jonge Gezellen, Drostdyhof and Theuniskraal originate in the valley known as Het Land van Waveren where wines have been cultivated since 1906. (See Wine Routes).

Extreme day and night temperatures and the mountainous backdrop, which creates a number of different mesoclimates, together with extremely variable soils in the valley, create some notable wines. Interesting for the connoisseur is the valley’s unique ‘cold trap’ phenomenon - the horseshoe shape of the mountains creates a bowl in which cold night time air lies undisturbed forming a bubble, which is trapped under warming air during the day.

The people in Tulbagh are renowned for their warmth and easygoing hospitality and the valley has fast become an attractive weekend getaway for Capetonians and Cape Winelands wedding and conference venue seekers. An earthquake in 1969, 6.4 on the Richter scale, badly damaged some of the original buildings on Church Street. Most of these were lovingly restored and today make up the largest concentration of National Monuments - 32 in total - and the highest number on any one street in South Africa.

Tulbagh is perfectly placed for day trips to Cape Town, Franschhoek, Paarl, Malmesbury, Stellenbosch, Worcester and Rawsonville as well as the Cape West Coast and, if you plan your trip accordingly, offers some of the best displays of veld flowers between April and October, making local walks and hikes an utter pleasure.

We had a lovely stay at Oude Tol Farm. It is rustic but comfortable and we were provided with clean bedding and towels and we had a beautiful shady tree to sit under near the braai.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

We found Tulbagh to be close enough to Cape Town for a quick weekend away with family & friends.
Clean town with stunning wine farms, wine tasting and lovely restaurants.

Very picturesque with great hiking, mountain biking trails.

Lots of convenient shops in the town.

Can't wait for our next visit.
